for joining us. >> any time. thank you. >>> for more on this, let's bring in our cnn political contributor and republican strategist, mary matalin and cornel belcher, democratic strategist and pollster with the obama 2012 campaign. mary, what do you make of the details of this opening bid from the white house? republicans have already dismissed it but does it give us any clues at all about what an eventual deal might look like? >> it's reported that mitch mcconnell, senate minority leader, burst out laughing when he heard it. it's not even worthy of a laugh. it's really sad, it's pathetic. we went from a reasonable theoretical $3 in cuts for $1 in revenue which was basically the simpson-bowles, and are now at $4 of real and immediate tax increases plus new spending for in the future unspecified, uncertain cuts to we don't know what. how could anyone take that seriously? i don't even -- i thought we were doing a kabuki dance. this is not a kabuki dance. i don't even know what this is. it's worse than laughable. it's embarrassing. this president won this election, he's supposed to be leading
-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters have mitt romney and president obama in a dead heat, 49% apiece. both candidates are canvassing the critical swing states on this final full day on the campaign trail. the president will hold rallies in madison, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, des moines, iowa. governor romney is in florida and lynchburg and fairfax virginia, columbus ohio and in manchester, new hampshire. and it wouldn't be a presidential election without some kind of legal fight in the state of florida. the state's democratic party is suing to extend early voting hours with people reporting lines of up to seven hours at some south florida early polling stations. cnn has this place covered like no other network. we've got dan lothian in madison, wisconsin. jim acosta is in orlando, florida, martin savidge is in cleveland, ohio. miguel marquez is in las vegas, nevada. ed lavandera is in denver, colorado, for us this morning. john zarrella comes to us live from plantation, florida. we want to begin with complete comprehensive coverage with john berman checking in to see how our correspondents
. "cnn newsroom" continues now with brooke baldwin. >> thank you so much. good to see all of you on a very exciting week this monday. i'm brooke baldwin. here we go. this is the real life political thriller gripping the nation, folks, we're now hours away from the final chapter. tomorrow is the day the majority of the nation heads to the voting booth. and take a look at this here, brand-new, cnn orc polling here shows really neither guy, look at this. 49%, 49%. talk about a page turner here. but for some voters, the voting has already begun. look at the lines. you see the sign. miami-dade county, these folks waiting hours to cast their absentee ballots there. you know the deal in florida. battleground state, one of the battleground states getting a visit from mitt romney. as he and the president are maximizing each and every campaign hour. president obama is hitting wisconsin, iowa, and, of course, ohio, before heading to chicago. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the e
's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: a source inside the meeting tells cnn rice admitted to gop senators she was aware of classified information suggesting al qaeda was behind the attack. and yet gop senators point out she still said this publicly. >> we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: cnn has also told rice tried to clarify to gop senators that what she meant was al qaeda's core leadership had been decimated. but gop senators argue rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: rice did not answer our questions. she did release a statement admitting her talking points "were incorrect in a key respect. there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. while we certainly wish we had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. we stress that neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at
're watching a special edition of starting point and cnn's live coverage of election day 2012. the two candidates have been talking for about 17 months now and now it's the american people who will have the final say. these are the states with polls that are opening right now. state of delaware, state of florida, state of georgia, illinois, kansas, louisiana, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, pennsylvania, rhode island, south carolina, tennessee, and washington, d.c. you're looking at a live picture now from wilmington, delaware, where joe biden is expected to vote at any moment. the vice president then will head to chicago to watch the returns with president obama today. mitt romney is not letting up on this election day. he's added two campaign campaign stops today in cleveland, ohio, and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. there are already legal issues that are plaguing two battleground states. state of florida, where there are more long lines yesterday, and democrats are suing to extend early voting hours, even though those early voting hours legally ended on saturday. then th
me @alivelshi. thank you for watching. cnn newsroom is up next. >>> hello, everyone. you're in the cnn newsroom. i'm fredricka whitfield. it's a sprint to the finish line for the presidential candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who w
the polls will shed some light on who will win? forget about it. cnn editor paul stein hauser is here to do the math for us. paul, what do the national polls look like? >> two days to go, and we have four polls that are nonpartisan and came out since midnight. let's start with the abc news/"washington post." 48% of likely voters supporting the president. 48% supporting mitt romney. how about nbc news/"wall street journal," pretty much the same story, a 1 percentage point ahead of mitt romney. and pugh research center, they came out with obama with a 3 point advantage. that's within the sampling error. this is just about dead even as we get into the election. >> act what battleground states? >> that's the key here because this is not a popular vote, this is a battle for the states and their electoral votes. we look at those eight battleground states, polls in two of them just came out last night and nee're interesting. this is in des moines, iowa. you have the president with a five-point advantage there and nbc news "wall street journal" maris poll had results that were similar. romney start
for being with me here. i'm brooke baldwin at the world headquarters of cnn in atlanta. let's go to my friend wolf blitzer, "the situation room" starts right now. hey, wolf. >> hi, brooke. thanks very much. happening now, president obama gets down to business. he's signaling what his priorities are for term two. also, a dramatic courtroom confrontation of the former congresswoman gabrielle gifford stares down the man who tried to kill her. now that the voters have had their say, colorado's marijuana growers and would-be legal dealers face a showdown with the federal government. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we're getting our first inside hints about what's on the president's to-do list now that the election is over. the list includes huge issues like taxes, the deficit, headline making overseas trip and a possible shakeup of his cabinet. let's get right to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she's been doing some reporting. jessica, what are you learning? >> reporter: hi, wolf. first the reports that the president is going to be delivering
. they confirm to cnn that the investigators have been exploring tips on an affair with paula broadwell, his biographer. they tried to see if there was a potential security risk, in other words to see if petraeus could possibly be black mailed. petraeus is a highly respected, retired four-star general who commanded forces in both iraq and afghanistan. he was sworn in to run the cia a little over a year ago with vice president biden with his wife holly at his side. that was the swearing in. they've been married 35 years, have two grown kids. so how will this revelation exact the u.s. intelligence community? joining me now is fran townsend and bob baer and suzanne kelly. suzanne, what more can you tell us about the probe into the relationship with paula broadwell? do we know how long this has been going on? >> we don't know how long it was going on, but just the -- so they're the ones that would look into accusations of inappropriate access to classified information. individuals that hold clearances, are they doing what they need to be doing to make sure that information stays safe? is there a
't materialize later. >> hardly a political plug there. cnn political director mark preston is live from washington this morning. mark, so far there are no formal fiscal cliff talks scheduled at the highest levels. but the white house just announced that president obama is going to be going to pennsylvania on friday to try to sell his version of the tax plan to the american people. is that going to help things? >> well, john, you know, it's a dual strategy right now that we're seeing develop in these negotiations over the fiscal cliff. the first strategy, of course, and the first bullet point is when president obama gets together with congressional leaders and they try to get some kind of resolution. the second bullet point, though, is to try to pressure the republican party and that's what we're seeing from president obama by going out to pennsylvania, to this manufacturing facility, that makes toys, including tinker toys and the k'nex building set. so we'll be doing that on friday. in addition, today it actually starts. pressure campaign begins today. they'll be meeting with small busi
it will be introduced as a sport at the next olympic games. >>> "cnn newsroom" continues with brooke baldwin. hey, brooke. >> hey, suzanne. good to see you. i'm brooke baldwin live from new york. all eyes on capitol hill as we get word of a major development here and talks over the so-called fiscal cliff. we'll have that in a moment. plus, ta-da, get your tickets out. tonight, the powerball jackpot hitting a record and this hour president obama getting ready to hold his first cabinet meeting since being re-elected. and keep in mind, some members of that cabinet, they will not be there for long. but first, the fiscal cliff battle here that landed in your lap today. president obama, even wants you to tweet about it. the president went full court press asking americans to pressure congress to keep middle class tax cuts for families earning $250,000 or less. >> it is too important for washington to screw this up. now is the time for us to work on what we all agree to, which is let's keep middle class taxes low. tweet, use the hashag my2k or e-mail, post it on a member of congress' facebook wall, do w
of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every
an egyptian who has been in the thick of it of course. take a look at this. from a cnn ireport. this is violence between police, rioters in tahrir square. this is another piece of video he sent us. this is actually what you're looking at here is a funeral procession. this happened yesterday. this was for a 16-year-old boy who was allegedly killed during one of the protests in cairo, thousands of people showed up to march at that funeral. and earlier he told cnn why he and others are protesting against the president. here's his explanation. >> people should know there are certain goals of the revolution and morsi now is -- he thought they could take back the seats. so when you find thousands filling the squares, thousands marches in the streets of cairo and other city all over egypt, this is -- you should see there is something going wrong and the revolution has negated from its principles and goals. under mubarak there was oppression. now our rights are in danger, even under morsi, our friends are still killed by police. we're being tear gassed, so our life is in continuo
sandy. "cnn newsroom" continues with brooke baldwin. >> thank you. good to be with you on this thursday. important jobs news with just five days to go here before the election. this is a new report, released today which indicates the u.s. employers hiring in bigger numbers than expected. let me be clear. this information, this is not coming from that all-important government jobs report. that doesn't come out until tomorrow. so today's numbers come from adp. they process payroll so let's go straight to alison kosik for this. what more do we know about this report? >> okay. what this report does, brooke, surveys how many jobs that private employers have added so it means all those industries that are outside of the government arena and what it said this time around for october is 158,000 jobs were added. and it came in better than expected, seeing good job gains in services and construction and a second report on jobs showing unemployment claims fell by 9,000 last week. decent pieces of news from the labor market but the reality is analysts say it may not have a huge imp
hikes, and spending cuts that will come in the new year. brand-new cnn/orc poll shows that is, in fact, affecting the american people. 68% say they believe falling off the fiscal cliff could trigger major problems for the country, maybe even a crisis. brings us to dan lothian at the white house this morning. dan, good morning. senate goes back to work this afternoon. the house will return tomorrow. what could really be done by lame duck congress? >> well, look, the hope is that there will be some kind of compromise here, because as you pointed out most americans believe that if there is no agreement there really could be a crisis here. so you are seeing some softening from republicans who took that no tax pledge back to 1986. first it was saxby chambliss. now south carolina republican senator lindsey graham. take a listen. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid the coming grief, and republicans, republicans should put revenue on the table, we're this far in debt, we don't generate enough revenue. i want to buy down debt and cu
is taking that same step. >> but administration officials tell cnn no decision has been made yet. discussions are still ongoing within the administration. in two weeks there will be a friends of syria meeting in morocco, and a senior administration official says that is an opportunity for the opposition. they know the world is going to be seeing them at the meeting, so we'll just have to see how much progress they make between now and then. progress, as the u.s. defines it, includes creating a leadership structure. something the opposition already is doing and local committees. >> many of them are now starting to take up the slack where government has receded, where the regime is no longer able to provide services. everything from trash collection to insuring that there's no vigilante justice. we're watching those developments as wrl. the administration is deliberating whether or not to arm the opposition. >> providing arms to the opposition, will it convince the people who support assad. many many cases they are afraid of their own existence, or will it simply lead to more fight
't officially been called for either candidate, the miami herald says it's obama. cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar's been keeping track of what the president's been doing since his victory speech early this morning. brianna, the president should be landing back in washington very soon taking marine one over to the white house. he's got a full agenda ready i assume. >> reporter: he does. and i will tell you, wolf, the white house is keeping it under wraps as far as what happens after he arrives at the white house. but we know he'll land obviously at andrews air force base. we're expecting that not too long after 5:00 eastern. and then he'll come here to the white house landing on the south lawn in marine one. the first time he's been back to the white house knowing that he'll be here for another four years. this morning he did wake up in chicago as we await for him to leave chicago he called con gregs gnat leaders, democrats and republicans in both the house and senate before making his way to the airport stopped by his campaign headquarters to meet with hundreds of volunteers and st
're getting new details. cnn's national security contributor, member of the cia external advisory board. fran, nice to see you. i want to talk about this, some of the things that we have learned that are new here. the security concerns surrounding david petraeus's relationship with his biographer broadwell. you have found out new information about why the fbi was actually searching her home in north carolina earlier in the week. what were they looking for, and what do they believe her role is? >> well, what we're hearing now, suzanne, is that david petraeus, at some point earlier on had designated broadwell as his archivist. that is, to be the re pos itory of sort of the documents related to his military career. you can imagine we often think of that in relation to prior presidents who have a library david petraeus was assembling and leaving his documents, and he had broadwell, worry told, doing that for him. pretty interesting, suzanne, because, of course, we heard from surrogates for david petraeus that the relationship ended four months ago, so it's a question as to why would you have cont
, they said, with the ambassador's explanation for her comments following the benghazi consulate attack. cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott has more details for us. she's in washington, d.c. this morning. elise, good morning. >> hey, soledad. well, what came out in those meetings and why senators say they're even more concerned, centers around the information that the cia had just after the attack about possible involvement in the benghazi attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and those three other americans. now, ambassador rice did not make reference to this information in her talk show appearances. the unclassified talking points she used were provided by the cia, were stripped of these references to al qaeda, because the information was classified and couldn't be delivered in public. now, after the meeting, ambassador rice acknowledged those talking points turned out to be incorrect. but that she stressed she and the administration never meant to mislead the american people. and what the senators are saying is, as a cabinet member, ambassador rice is privy to this conflictin
the u.s. side. cnn reported it. it's significant to me, my information is that iran has now reported it to the iranian people. in farcesy. they reproduced the cnn report and sadded this, cnn did not sa how they recognized these were revolutionary guard fighters. >> i want to come to the quasi cover-up, whatever it was. i know it's an unmanned drone, it's our plane, it's our real estate. >> it's a predator, it's a drone. >> why don't we do something in return? that's what i'm saying. why do they feel they can do this with impunity? >> the supreme leader has the upper hand. there are secret negotiations under way between the obama administration and the supreme leader to come to a -- over the nuclear weapons cycle. iran wants the u.s. to blast its nuclear fuel cycle as nonmilitary. iran wants lots of concessions. that's what the dohaa deal was reported in early october. the iranians took this shot. revolutionary guard corps took this shot. two fighters scrambled. they could have shot it down. they did not. more significant according to my source, tehran did not announce it. ask that qu
they want real progress and real give and take to get there. 72% in our new cnn poll say they want president obama to compromise with republicans on taxes and spending. and an identical 72% want republicans to do the same, compromise with the other side. as for what compromise should entile, 67%, more than 2 in 3 favor a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. that's what they say real progress would look like. keeping them honest, though, real progress is one thing, washington progress is another. so far at least, we're seeing much more of the second and the first and we're getting late new word that any progress might be stalled. more on that shortly. first, a good example of washington progress. republican lawmakers standing up in a limited way to a beltway power broker named grover norquist over the 1980s era pledge he pressures to sign. promising not to raise taxes, any taxes, ever. >> i'm not obligated on the pledge, i made tennessee ans aware i am honoring the oath when i'm sworn in this january. >> that's one of the handful of republican lawmakers repudiating the pledge. he joins us
. the new cnn/orc poll, when asked is the gop doing enough to cooperate with obama, 70% said no, of americans, whereas when they asked if obama is doing enough to cooperate with the gop, 45% yes, 49% no. clearly the republicans are being predominantly blamed for the breakdown in bipartisanship in washington. the fiscal cliff is a classic opportunity, many would argue, to show the americans you've listened, you've changed, you're ready to do deals that are to the benefit of the american national interest. >> well, i mean, piers, look, the president's the leader of this country and he's got to lead and he's got to take control, and he's got to show the american people that he can put people together and a team together, meaning republicans and democrats, and come up with solutions but so far, piers, we don't even know what the president's plans are. he's done a good job of apparently making americans feel that that's the case, but what he hasn't done a good job is really leading with evidence and with substance on the table as far as what he would do. here's the problem, piers. if
's still a lot to learn. tom foreman, cnn, baltimore. >>> outfront next, with the fiscal cliff just 35 days away, congressional loerds say president obama isn't doing enough to make a deal. senator mark warner, the third wealthiest man of the senate, outfront on tax rates and whether the president needs to take a bigger role. >>> plus, the u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice, admits the talking points she used after the benghazi attack were wrong. republicans call her answers troubling. >>> and a former mayor spent her life taking on thugs in her town. her fight and her life tonight are now over. let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett "outfront" tonight, where in the world is president obama? it's been 11 days since he met with congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. and with impending doom as a lot of people describe it, just 35 days away, key lawmakers say the president hasn't worked hard enough with them to broker a deal. >> rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties and working out an agreement, he's back on the campaign trail presumably with
grandchildren. you can see a lot more of the pictures on our website cnn.com. stay with us for the complete coverage of the final hours of the 2012 campaign. >> join us tuesday 6:00 p.m. eastern for election night in america. "piers morgan tonight" starts right now. >>> you know where i stand. and you know what i believe. you know i tell the truth. and you know i'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as i know how. >>> a fiery president obama fighting for his life. the man who wants his job, mitt romney, we're keeping an eye on that for you tonight. good evening. and welcome to a very special battleground edition of "piers morgan tonight." the latest poll out tonight shows this race is a down to the wire dead heat. look at these figures. 49% for president obama. 49% for mitt romney. with two days to go until election day. this may be the picture of who makes a difference. less than a week after sandy's fury, temperatures are dropping and anger is rising. among the storm tossed appliances and debris, no power. american flags flying proudly. people deter
cnn poll of polls today shows president obama ahead by one point. 49 to 48 for mitt romney and it could all come down to this state where i am tonight. ohio. both campaigns made stops here today. mitt romney's campaign just announced he will make a stop here tomorrow as well. now, each man spent the day crisscrossing the united states, trying to make final pleas to voters. >> we have got to lead america to a better place. we're one day away from a fresh start. >> after all we have been through through together, we can't give up on it now. we've got more work to do. >> all of the key swing states are getting a glimpse of the candidates and their running mates today. florida, virginia, wisconsin, colorado, iowa, new hampshire and nevada. joining me here in ohio is john avlon. he has been traveling the state aboard the cnn election express bus. i'm also joined by john king in washington, d.c. the electoral college map, how does it add up right now? >> when you talk to the two campaigns, it's as if even though it's one country, they live in parallel universes. both saying they
to cnn foreign affairs reporter live in washington. good morning. >> good morning, brooke. israel very opposed to the move. the u.s. knows this move went give the palestinians what they want -- a state. this is largely symbolic. will have no effect on sovereignty or borders. hillary clinton met with president abbas and tried to assure him not to go ahead with the move. let's listen to what she told reporters yesterday. sfm know matter what happens it will not change what i support. the only way to get a lasting solution is to commence direct negotiations and we need an environment conducive to that. we have urged both parties to refrain from actions that might in any way make a return to meaningful negotiations -- >> now, brooke, president abbas promised to return to negotiations after the vote. but with israel so opposed to the move it doesn't seem likely. prime minister benjamin netanyahu slammed the resolution calling it one-sided saying it doesn't take into account israel's security interests and it pushes the peace process back. israel is threatening to withhold a hundred million
for him last time? i mean, it's 5-5. did they move? i heard of a cnn poll that showed a tie. but then the dr, did you see it was 30% republican, 41% democrat, and it came out a tie. so they needed a plus 11 to get it a tie. does that mean anything? >> well, what the partisan identification balance turns out to be today is going to be one of the critical factors. this is another key disagreement with the two sides. democrats believe that when you look at the exit polls and see who showed up to vote, that there will be 4% or 5% who are democrats than republicans. in 2008, there were 8% more democrats. in 2004, when republicans had an especially strong turnout operation, it was level. >> do we know 2010? >> 2010 i believe had a slight democratic advantage. very slight. >> even though the drought come was so overwhelmingly -- >> well, we have strongly party voting, but not overwhelming. and it depends on the individual state. but republicans believe that the partisan identification balance today, romney campaign believes it will be about plus two for the democrats. >> independen
between now and tuesday. the race still considered too close to call of cnn's latest poll shows president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, he went on
's on a knife edge. the latest cnn poll, 49% each, a dead heat, as things stand. in various swing state, it is different which depending on which poll you read. what happens no one can say with certainty what is going to happen here. a question i put to you, michael why has obama not been able to be further ahead? why is it so close? >> it's combination of things you the obvious ones, you know, the economy could be better right now. there's still a lot of people out of work. we are still in afghanistan. go down the whole list of things. i think honestly, considering the hand he was dealt at the beginning, he has done a good job dealing with the mess that the bush administration handed him. and i think it's this close -- i hate to say this, because i just -- it just -- but i've been out in the midwest and i'm listening to people and stuff, i'm still amazed at how the issue of race comes up in this election, still. somebody was saying earlier, i think it was on cnn, of the -- you know, romney is gonna win the white vote or whatever. and it is just interesting, it is like it almost sounds
